  • Doing Theology with Humility, Generosity, and Wonder: A Christian Theology of Pluralism

    Doing Theology with Humility, Generosity, and Wonder: A Christian Theology of Pluralism

    This book looks at how Christians can think about their own theology in a manner that will allow them to not only be more open to interfaith dialogue but see that conversation as essential to what it means to be a Christian in the modern age. It provides both theoretical and practical pathways for reconceiving Christian theology in a multireligious context.

    The Homebrewed Christianity Guide to Being Human: Becoming the Best Bag of Bones You Can Be

  • The Homebrewed Christianity Guide to God: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know about the Almighty

    The Homebrewed Christianity Guide to God: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know about the Almighty

    In this latest installment of the Homebrewed Christianity series, Eric E. Hall approaches the question of God from various perspectives. The classical conception of God is like the famously stoic-yet-lethal Mr. Miyagi in the Karate Kid. Competing versions of God include Your Hippie Aunt, St. Joan of Arc, and even the muscle-headed goons from Jersey Shore. At the end of this romp through history and pop culture, Hall argues that the God you need may be the very God you rejected years ago.

He goes on to show where the current church has gone wrong, and he explains how to fix it.
